Watching these preseason games, you see how shallow our right-side D depth really is.

Tanev, Gudbranson, Stetcher, Biega, Chatfield... Other than the Tan-man, it's pretty sad. There's no way you can move Tanev, not with Aqua's mandate of "Win Now For Luigi".

:roll:
Trade for Myers, Jets can't afford to re-sign him with Laine and Trouba needing new contracts for next year.
Or sign Myers in the summer. Why piss away assets for him so you can maybe sign him? Pure stupidity for a rebuilding team. He migh get here and hate the losing and hate the rain and leave after one season.
There is this thing called asking for permission to speak to his agent prior to a trade - to see about signing a new contract extension first, not rocket science.

I still give Demko 10-15 NHL games throughout the season, he needs to get some pro games to know what to expect for the future.

Ian Clarke will be invaluable for him this year.

Jack Hughes is a “real” possibility

Keep the assets.Sign a guy(s) as a UFA. This team needs to build depth at all positions, not piss it away once they get a little bit. There will be a guy out there that will be a substantial upgrade on Gudbranson

Another point for Petterson. He comes as advertised.

You know whats really scary, aside from Elias there hasn't been one prospect who is trumpeted as a future piece that looks ready...

Pettersson and Q Hughes are on the same level regarding IQ. It’s going to be sweet watching those two make some magic

Well depends on what assets would be given up, if you can keep most of the quality prospects and picks, and all the Jets want is affordable NHL roster player depth for another Cup run, doesn't hurt to check in on that.


Anyways, wooooooooo! Sutter, superstar Elias with the threaded pass. :thumbs: :thumbs: :thumbs:

Pettersson is the special one though. Most of them need a bit more seasonings for sure. I would not write any kids off yet.

Green will bench Boeser for the first two games and he will take off. :mrgreen:
